Addressing a poll rally here, he hit out at National Conference leader Omar Abudullah for his "Prime Minister for Jammu & Kashmir," line, and asked the people whether they supported the Kashmir leader's remarks.
"Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India, we will never compromise on the Kashmir issue," he said.
The party chief alleged the candidates nominated by Congress and DMK - the likes of Karti Chidambaram, Kanimozhi and A Raja (from Nilgiris) - were tainted by graft.
Shah, seeking votes for his party candidate and State unit chief Tamilisai Soundararajan said "when BJP-led government returns to power," at the Centre it would continue contributing even more for the growth of Tamil Nadu.
